Fix Yum Update Duplicate Packages Issue

Yum logo

First install yum utils if it's not installed
yum install yum-utils

1- Second, start with
yum-complete-transaction
yum update

2- If that doesn't work, try
yum clean all
yum update

3- If the above doesn't work, try the below:
yum update --skip-broken

Then (this might take a while)
yum check all

Then clean Duplicates
package-cleanup --cleandupes

Then update again:
yum update

In addition, if you just want to list the duplicates, (this will not fix anything)
package-cleanup --dupes # list out duplicates

In case of a disconnection while yum is cleaning, the following command will complete the cleanup:
yum-complete-transaction --cleanup-only
